About Me: 

I am currently living between Texas and Dubai, my husband and I are both semi retired with family in the USA and business interests in Dubai. I have lived 30+ years in Dubai and consider it to be home. Like most places in the world there is a lot wrong here, but there is a whole lot more that is right, the most important aspect of living here for me is the constant contact and communication with people from all over the world. I am surrounded by inspirational women from all nationalities, cultures and beliefs.
As I approach my mid 50's however I feel that I want to spend more time encouraging the growth of other women, I currently mentor MBA students here but my plan is to eventually find a non profit organisation that I will be able to work with mentoring women in developing countries.

My Passions: 
Helping other women to be all that they can be. Encouraging newcomers to Dubai to network with other Professional Women.
My Challenges: 
overcoming fibromyalgia, finding the time to do all that I want to do.
My Vision for the Future: 
A world where we treat each other as we wish to be treated.
My Areas of Expertise: 
Small business start up, administration, basic accounting.
